If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity, or if your organization wants to develop a volunteer program, The Volunteer Center can help you connect with thousands of placements across San Francisco and the Peninsula.
Are you looking for an on-going commitment or a one-time job? Do you want to show up solo or be part of a group? Whether you're interested in mentoring a student, delivering or serving meals, pet care, gardening, or writing newsletters from home, they have an endless list to match everyone’s interests.
The Volunteer Center is a staff favorite in the employment program, as many job-seekers request our assistance in connecting with placements to enhance their resumes, bolster self-efficacy and self-esteem, give back to the community, network with peers, and practice punctuality and dependability. The Center also presents opportunities for Bay Area residents to serve on the boards of directors of local nonprofit organizations, which helps develop strong leadership skills and community connections.

I'm a psychologist with a private practice in San Francisco's Castro District. I'm interested in harm reduction, LGBTQQIAAP issues, psychedelic integration, social justice conversations, size acceptance, and any intersections of the above. I welcome your comments!
